As a police officer, there’s no shortage of drama on—and off—the job for a young woman named Ashley Walters. In Amy Wallace’s Nowhere to Run (Harvest House), Ashley is being stalked—and her wedding plans are put on hold when her fiancé is attacked. Worse yet, a detective has been shot protecting her.
Forced to flee for her own safety, Ashley winds up in a Mennonite community in Indiana, where strangely enough, trouble has followed her. “Nowhere to Run was born out of my wrestling matches with God and His prying my fearful hands off of my life and the lives of those I love to teach me what it really means to not just say, ‘I trust God,’ but to walk that trust out in everyday decisions and difficult challenges,” Amy says. “I hope what readers will take away is a deeper understanding that God is light in the darkness, hope at a hospital bedside and peace when storms rage and that He never, ever lets go of us.”
